Gypsy

Gypsy

Labrador - female

Gypsy is a gorgeous girl, a 6 year old golden Labrador with beautiful Topaz eyes and a gentle nature. She is very well behaved, no puppy chewing or destruction and a lovely dog. She has adjusted very well from outdoor life to indoor life and really enjoys human company. She loves a cuddle and lots of attention. She is not used to walking on a lead and does need some more training, but she enjoys her walks and knows her basic commands. She is very good with other dogs and just wants to play. It would be good for her to find a family with older children as she is used to children and misses them. Gypsy would make a great pet for a family with a good backyard and who will allow her inside as she loves being with people.

He is in care in the Wollongong area.

Gypsy was adopted on 13 April 2012 after 2 weeks in foster care

Max

Max

Tibetan Spaniel x - male

Max is a happy smiley boy who loves company of people, dogs and cats! He enjoys sharing time with you so would suit someone who has the time to be his best mate. Whilst he has been living with me, we have enjoyed a daily walk and he sets a cracking pace easily keeping up with my bigger dog. He has shared space with my 3 cats and pays them scant attention. He has enjoyed coming inside and snoozing at my feet whilst we watch television in the evenings. I have brushed his silky smooth coat weekly and this will need to be maintained to keep him in top condition.He lays calmly on the floor whilst being brushed as he obviously enjoys the attention. Max enjoys his dinner and on a sunny day can be found in my yard munching on a bone.He is not a fussy eater and hasnt refused a meal. Max would like to meet you so please consider him when considering adding a new member to the family.

Max was adopted on 10 April 2012 after 6 days in foster care

Pearl

Pearl

British Bulldog - female

Pearl came into care after she was found living in a dirty enviroment with 7 other dogs and lots of cats. Pearl was living under the house and doesn't appear to have ever had any vet treatment. She has had a couple of litters of puppies in the past and upon coming into care was very underweight and had a shocking skin condition which is being treated. After our vets assessed her we've found she has more problems than first expected. Below is a list of her ailments.

  • Chronic unmanaged skin infection: Pyoderma
  • Bilateral untreated aural heamatomas
  • Chronic ear infection
  • Right cruciate rupture untreated leading to arthritic changes in the right stifle
  • Open draining pyometra (or infected uterus)
  • pendulous vagina due to slack ligaments, likely due to numerous pregnancies.

So Pearl has a long road of recovery ahead, which includes a knee replacement, but she is only young and despite the horrible life she has had so far Pearl is doing really well in foster care and we hope that she will make a full recovery from her numerous medical problems she's come into care with.

Pearls additional vet costs have so far been quoted at around $1400.

Thank you to Emmaline, Brenda, Holly, Anna, Vanessa, Kelly, Elouise, Deborah, Henry, Ann, Sharee, Alison, Jacquelin, Don, Davy, Browyn and Lesley for your generous donations, with all your help Pearl's vet fees have now been fully covered.

Pearl

Pearl

British Bulldog - female

Pearl came into care after a nice lady seen that she was in trouble and wasn't being looked after in her home, she had had multiple litters of puppies was underweight and had a horrible skin condition that needs 8 weeks of antibioctics to treat it. She is a lovely girl that gets along well with other dogs big and small and LOVES to play ball. Pearl is good with kids of all ages, however she is not good with cats at all and will not be rehomed to a family with a cat, she needs to be inside with the family which is something she hasn't experinced before. Pearl will be ready for her new home shortly but enquires are welcome now.

Marc

Marc

Kelpie - male

As a Christmas reject this boy deserves a loving forever home. He given as a surprise present but was rejected by the parents. He has ended up being taken away from mum at a too early age but is none the worse for it. One very handsome little chap who is typical of his breed so would suit an active person/family. Marc just loves people, walks, adventure and is a typical pup who is extremely curious about everything in life. He loves to be around you where ever you go, so he must be an inside/outside dog and very much a part of family activities. He's still toilet training as he's young but will master very quickly in his new home with patience and understanding.

Marc is located at Glenhaven

Marc was adopted on 26 March 2012 after 1 month in foster care

Sparky

Sparky

Terrier x - male

Sparky is a lovely little fellow, approximately 18 months old with some mouthy puppy characteristics when he plays which I am working on. He loves a short cuddle and is a loving, intelligent little dog (6kgs). He would well suit a family with primary age children or older as he loves children but can be excitable. Sparky gets on well with smaller and larger dogs and loves a game in a fenced dog park. He does respond to some commands but needs some training, he walks well on a lead and enjoys his walks. His wiry coat is easy to manage and he does not mind having a bath. He only barks when warranted and would make a good alert dog. Sparky likes going in the car and is well behaved. His cute little face with spikey hair just melts your heart and if I wanted a permanent dog I would keep him myself as he is such a good little boy. If you think he could become part of your family, please call or email me.

He is in care in the Shellharbour area.

Sparky was adopted on 20 March 2012 after 3 weeks in foster care

Holly

Holly

Terrier x - female

Holly is a pint sized Miss who would love a new family for her New Year present. We think she is around 5-7 months old, and she weighs 10 kgs. Holly is currently in foster care with two large dogs. She is learning to be inside when the family is home and outside during the day. She loves to play with her foster brother, and being a puppy she also likes chew toys. With her wirehair coat Holly will be low maintenance in her grooming requirements. She is an outgoing little dog who doesn't seem to be scared of anything.

Deisel

Deisel

Aussie Bulldog - male

Desiel was surrendered to the pound after a marriage breakdown and neither owner wanted him. Desiel is a lovely young boy who will be 2 years old on the 18th March. He is good with other dogs male and female of his own size and smaller and also good with kids. Desiel weighs in at almost 21kg but is a bit underweight so has a couple of kgs to gain.

Misty

Misty

Pomeranian - female

Misty sat in the pound with her friend Mufasa ( he has found his forever home ) for 7 days. Neither dog had a Microchip and their owner never came to collect them nor were they adopted. Misty is a lovely little girl and weighs in at 2.7kg. She is a tad smaller than my cat!! She is great with other dogs and plays well with them, and has learned to live with cats really well and no longer barks at them. If you can offer this lovely young lady a home we would love to hear from you.
